....
Single Elder/Pastor Led

...most authority based churches are, in essence, single pastor led. Read the rationale as presented on Theopedia.

Paige Patterson argues that, despite biblical evidence undeniably exists in support of a plurality of elders, several factors support the ascendancy of a principal elder as the singular leader of the congregation. Those factors include:

1) the general pattern in the Old and New Testaments (e.g. Moses, the judges, Peter, James the brother of Jesus);
2) the pattern of the early church (e.g. John Chrysostom in Antioch and at Saint Sophia's in Constantinople, Augustine in Hippo, Jonathan Edwards in Northampton);
3) influence of the synagogue on the church, including adoption by the church of the "president of the synagogue" in the form of the "pastor/elder/overseer"; and
4) the psychology of human leadership. ( Who Runs the Church, pp. 150-52)

There seems to be some understanding that such governance will lead to autocracy....

Many of the comments to this article were quite good.

Complimentary to the former message.

....
Today the city is a "hair's breadth from destruction." She [Ng] is particularly distressed by police violence, which is a departure from the professional policing bequeathed to this city from its last three decades of colonial rule. Recently the police have prevented, sometimes for hours, first-aid providers from attending to those the police have injured. The city government under Beijing's puppet, Carrie Lam, is increasingly resorting to the policy Ng calls "beat up, lock up and silence."

Lam and her Beijing masters are learning that what Gen. Douglas MacArthur said of military disasters -- that all are explained, in one way or another, by two words: "too late" -- is also often true in politics. In April, Lam ignited a long hot summer by refusing to amend an extradition bill that would have facilitated, by regularizing, Beijing's penchant for kidnapping into its Kafkaesque criminal justice system inconvenient Hong Kong booksellers and other affronts to totalitarianism....

A Catholic priest would be a little bit harder to make a robot for. It has to be able to molest parishioners if it is going to be a halfway accurate representation of a Catholic priest ❗👎

A very well done article ❗
Shmuley Boteach wrote:
Keren Hayesod has organized a trip for its largest donors to visit Russia where the featured speaker will be President Vladimir Putin. Yes, that Putin. The former KGB colonel who also directed the Federal Security Service (the KGB’s domestic successor). The meeting would be questionable enough if Putin only assassinated his political rivals, imprisoned his critics and dismantled Russian democracy in its embryonic stage. It would be questionable enough if Putin only invaded Crimea and had his opponents poisoned. But most relevant to Jews and their values is the fact that Putin aids Syrian forces in genocide and protects the nuclear ambitions of Iran....

The number of Christians in Hong Kong is questionable, but this is what Wikipedia says about it:
Wikipedia wrote:
About 500,000 Protestant Christians live in Hong Kong. The Protestant Church is made up of over 1,300 congregations in more than 50 denominations. Major denominations are Anglicans, Baptists, Lutherans, Adventists, Christian and Missionary Alliance, Church of Christ in China, Methodist, Pentecostal and Salvation Army.
--https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_Hong_Kong

Probably for any person in Hong Kong, they should make sure their their British passport up-to-date,

https://tinyurl.com/y5f8tsjt (How Hong Kong Came Under 'One Country, Two Systems' Rule)

because in 2047 Hong Kong will be completely integrated into China

If Christ returns before then, they better make sure their Christian passport is up-to-date

'“At the same time, earnings except for those at the highest end of the wage spectrum have seen wages that have not really grown in recent years.” '

The above quote from the Sacramento Bee article that SA used, seems to be a problem throughout the whole country, as a few of the threads on SermonAudio has pointed out. It's just too expensive to live in California.

As Pew Research put it.

....
But despite the strong labor market, wage growth has lagged economists’ expectations. In fact, despite some ups and downs over the past several decades, today’s real average wage (that is, the wage after accounting for inflation) has about the same purchasing power it did 40 years ago. And what wage gains there have been have mostly flowed to the highest-paid tier of workers....

Chris GP many IFBs have a full set of Elders, the problem is they are supposed to do what the pastor says and not what the Bible says--all too often! This is a serious problem.

He called the law “really quite extreme” and pushed back against the idea that it was vulnerable only because of a more conservative Supreme Court. “It’s not so much a political issue as well-established First Amendment law,” he said.

A New York state ban that applies only to minors would still be in effect. [ ]

A very succinct article! The ban needs to be lifted on conversion therapy for minors.

Earlier Sunday, hundreds of protesters waved British flags, sang “God Save the Queen” and chanted “UK save Hong Kong” outside the British Consulate as they stepped up calls for international support for their campaign.

With banners declaring “one country, two systems is dead,” they repeated calls for Hong Kong’s former colonial ruler to ensure the city’s autonomy is upheld under agreements made when it ceded power to China in 1997....

Unqualified Judges'

The last time the ABA's Standing Committee doled out its lowest ranking before Trump was in 2006 when the Bush administration put forth Michael Wallace for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Wallace was Bush's seventh and last judicial nominee deemed unqualified by the group.

In the next 10 years, the committee reviewed more than 600 candidates for federal judicial posts, all of whom were deemed qualified for the bench.

But that streak was broken in October when the ABA ranked Trump nominee Charles Goodwin unqualified. A month later, three more of Trump's nominees—Leonard Grasz, Holly Teeter, and Brett Talley—received the same ranking.

To put that in perspective, there were only seven nominees deemed unqualified during President George W. Bush's eight years in office. Trump is more than halfway there 11 months into his term....

Now this article is nearly two years old I wonder if any more of trumps picks have failed ABA muster ⁉️

The report looked at data from the US Federal Housing Agency and found that the median price of home sales has increased by 39% in roughly the same time frame. Meanwhile, national health care costs per person have increased by $9,000 since 1970, and the cost of education has more than doubled since 1971, according to the report.
Well, that was definitely an informative article. It appears that many parents have to drop dead soon so they can pass along their money to their children - if they don't want to expand Obamacare for instance. 👍

I'm happy to say, I was able to read the original WSJ article in its entirety. I bet if I tried it a second time though it wouldn't happen. I also noticed WSJ had a similar article to the one above that I didn't even try to read. Anyway give SermonAudio article a shot, since you may be able to read the entire thing, and it is a good article.

There are a lot of licensed preachers peddling the Word also
Barnes Commentary wrote:
....( By attempting to make the facts of Scripture accord with the prevalent notions of philosophy, and by applying a mode of interpretation to the Bible which would fritter away its meaning, and make it mean anything or nothing at pleasure. In these, and in various other ways, men have corrupted the word of God; and of all the evils which Christianity has ever sustained in this world, the worst have been those which it has received from philosophy, and from those teachers who have corrupted the word of God. The fires of persecution it could meet, and still be pure; the utmost efforts of princes, and monarchs, and of Satan to destroy it, it has outlived, and has shone purely, and brightly amidst all these efforts; but, when corrupted by philosophy, and by "science falsely so called," it has been dimmed in its lustre, paralyzed in its aims, and shorn of its power, and has ceased to be mighty in pulling down the strongholds of Satan's kingdom. Accordingly, the enemy of God has ceased to excite persecution, and now aims in various ways to corrupt the gospel by the admixture of philosophy, and of human opinions....

It seems to me, if memory serves, that Indiana demands that all aborts have to be given a proper burial?

https://tinyurl.com/y4sjsn9m (State-Mandated Mourning for Aborted Fetuses)

The Indiana law came when this doctor had to quit practice, so getting rid of aborts shouldn't have caused him any difficulty or expense. Also from articles that I read he didn't do any experimentation on the aborts either. Were they trophies?

Tricia Harte wrote:
The Indiana Medical Licensing Boarded voted to suspend longtime abortion doctor Ulrich George Klopfer's medical license indefinitely.

The decision came after some 12 hours of testimony presented to the Board. Klopfer will have to pay a fine of $3,000 and must undergo special training and certification should he decided to ever petition for his license to be reinstated....

A nationwide anti-conversion law would even be worse than what they have now in India on state-level, which is bad enough

I seriously doubt that the individual American can do much about this evil 👎 I don't know if there is any product from India that we can boycott and will have any effect, for example?
